Node.js is an innovative, event-driven asynchronous input/output system built for sites that support live communication. A few examples of such sites would be online browser game portals, live chat rooms or hotel booking portals. Node.js handles the information sent between the website and its visitors in small bits, which accelerates the loading speed and the performance of the website noticeably. If some form with three boxes has to be filled out by a specific user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one sizeable chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed as soon as it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. In this way, much more info can be processed much faster and more effectively compared to any conventional platform, which can exert a remarkable effect on the performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.

Node.js in Hosting

You can take advantage of Node.js with each hosting plan that we’re offering, as the platform is present on our cloud servers and can be added to an existing web hosting account with several mouse clicks. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can pick how many instances you would like to add. One instance means that one single app will use the platform and you’ll be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you need. A new section will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel soon after that and to begin using Node.js, you will need to add the path to the .js file that will use it and to choose if the connection should proceed through the server’s shared IP or through a dedicated one. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to reboot or to switch off an instance and to view the output of any given app.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Servers

With a semi-dedicated server from us, you can use all the advantages that the Node.js platform is offering, since it is comes with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you are able to add it to your account with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server management tool that is included with every semi-dedicated server. If you want to employ Node.js for multiple Internet applications, you can pick the number of instances which the platform will use when you are adding this service to your semi-dedicated plan. After that, you’ll have to include the location of the .js file in your semi-dedicated account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you order the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose if the access path to the specific app should go through a dedicated IP address – in case you’ve got one, or through the server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be restarted or deleted separately and you can check the output of your apps with just a few clicks.

Node.js in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to make use of the Node.js platform with your real-time, script-powered apps at no additional charge in case you order any of our dedicated servers and pick the Hepsia Control Panel during the order procedure. The Node.js instances can be administered from the Node.js section of the Hepsia CP through an easy-to-navigate graphical interface, which will allow you to start/discontinue/reboot any instance or to see the output of the app which uses it with just a click. Even if you are not very tech-savvy, you will be able to use the platform, since all you need to do to set it up is enter the location of the .js file and select the IP address that will be used to access the latter – a dedicated or a shared one. A random port number will be set automatically too and you’ll notice the benefits of running Node.js immediately. By mixing the platform with the power of our dedicated servers, you will be able to use the full potential of your apps and to get the best achievable performance.
